Yumi

NORO, £5.95

Taken from the Ki­bou col­lec­tion, this sim­ple lacy-knit bolero show­cases Noro’s vi­brant self­strip­ing blend of cot­ton, wool and silk yarn beau­ti­fully – the mix­ture of blues, pur­ples, turquoise and or­ange re­minds us of oceans and sun­sets in balmy climes – you’ll feel in­stantly sum­mery when you put it on! The open lace knit is in­cred­i­bly com­fort­able to wear and will keep the sun's dam­ag­ing rays at bay, while keep­ing you cool and com­fort­able all at the same time.

Qua­tre­foil scarf

TASHAKNITS, £3.92

Worked in two parts, this ethereal lace scarf may be del­i­cate, but it’s a bit of a show­stop­per in our opin­ion – layer it over a plain black dress and you’ll cre­ate a head-turn­ing evening look with­out the need to splash out on a new out­fit! The sim­ple rec­tan­gu­lar shape al­lows the Es­to­nian lace pat­tern to take cen­tre stage. The nupps – or bob­bles – add tex­ture when com­bined with the lace open­work, and the sump­tu­ous blend of merino and silk gives beau­ti­ful drape. Just gor­geous. A Down­load from TashaKnits’ etsy store

Sisika

LOUISA HARD­ING, £6.95

Knot­ted at the neck or worn loose, Louisa Hard­ing’s Sisika (taken from the Ami­tola pat­tern book) is soft and ro­man­tic with a vin­tage twist. Knit­ted from the bot­tom up, with moss stitch and ca­bles pro­vid­ing con­trast­ing tex­tures, the scarf can be knit­ted as a small scarf us­ing a sin­gle strand of yarn on 4mm nee­dles, or as a large scarf with the yarn used dou­ble and a pair of 6mm nee­dles. Each one is lovely. A For stock­ists go to www. de­sign­er­yarns.uk.com or call 01535 664222

Bolero 5687

WENDY, £2.85

Knit­ted in Wendy’s un­be­liev­ably soft and stroke-able Merino 4ply, this sim­ple lit­tle knit is a sum­mer sta­ple – you can make it in the small­est size for just £9 and in many dif­fer­ent shades. Add a state­ment but­ton you’ve been saving in a con­trast­ing shade, or leave out the but­ton­hole al­to­gether and fas­ten with a popper. The plain de­sign will carry off em­broi­dery too, so why not add a smat­ter­ing of du­pli­cate stitch flow­ers or a folk-in­spired cross stitch de­sign on the back? A For stock­ists go to www. tbrams­den.co.uk or call 01943 872264
